7:36 am
after these meetings we appear to be even farther apart on this. is this just what is coming out of this, are talks really going somewhere i will start with you. >> well, look, there is no question that based on what the rating systems are saying, what economists are saying, what the catastrophic effect this will be a deal needs to be done senator mitch mcconnell has come up with a deal, the last bad choice we can pick, not the best choice i don't think there are any choices, that are good i don't think any of them are good but we have to get it done otherwise there will be some serious problems in terms of our economy everybody things it will hurt the financial market what happens really, the working americans will be suffering even more all their credit card rates will go up, so it is a horrible fix that needs to get done, and maybe after the blow up yesterday, they will get together all right let's get it done today. just a little more under
7:37 am
the senate minority leader, mitch mcconnell's plan he says the president could request and get increases up to 2.5 trillion government barring authority, as long as he also proposed spending cuts of greater size how far is this likely to go. >> i don't think it is likely to go far at all republican leadership tells me house leadership that it fell like a dead ball on the house floor. just is not something that is likely to move forward and that is one of the problems right now no one has a formula what you have got a is lot of tension and some people are making political mistakes i think the week when the president came out, and declared that social security checks might not go out it was a mistake because in essence what he said was social security system at the present time is so bankrupt we cannot
7:38 am
send out the checks unless we borrow money from the chinese that goes to the heart of an issue that is out there for a long time many people believe there is a trust fund that holds their money, for the checks and so on and now this is basically belied that saying we can't even pay social security checks, if something happens. >> you touched on it a little bit but moody's investor service coming out saying they are looking at at that credit rating, ben bernanke saying this would be devastating sending ripple effects through the entire economy is wall street showing signs of instability leading up to this, let me ask you ramifications here and in your knowledge, are we likely to see a deal made? >> i think a deal will get made because it will be so huge as mitch mcconnell says he doesn't want to have a bad economy dropped in the laps of the
7:39 am
republican party. here is part of my problem, republicans don't know how to take yes for an answer they wanted $2 trillion in cuts president obama eventually gets it up to 4 trillion they still couldn't say yes i mean they want to criticize the left for saying we don't want to cut medicare or social security or medicaid but in essence, nancy pelosi put everything on the table everything needs to be looked at by itself but everything is on the table republicans basically just said no there is a difference saying i want to negotiate, bob and i can negotiate something if i turn to him and say can we do this and you say no we can't negotiate any more. >> the problem is some of these things out there are in fact real problems the social security system has real problems in it. and some of these things have to be a part of a major deal here and you know i just think that there has been a lot of
7:40 am
poisoning of the well, taken place along the way here republicans actually put a budget on the table months ago they took some real risks in doing what they did, the senate has yet to table a budget the president had a budget out there he was dead on arrival because it spoke to none of these tough issues, he went to george washington university, made a speech he said here is my plan they have never yet put that plan into any kind of form that it can be scored, and what the republicans are saying, is until you lay a plan on the table this is where the tension was yesterday until you lay a plan on the table that can be scored so we know what you are for as well as against we can't very well continue negotiations. >> got to end it there we have learned these talks ended rather abruptly yesterday with the president walking out saying enough is enough see you tomorrow we will wait and see what happens thank you for coming in. hope to see you soon. >> good luck in the game

8:04 am
mother and 20 month old infant still inside. we do have a look at him, his name is teron white, age 22 this is him at rockville police station within the last hour. he tore down 95, at a high rate of speed, at one point sideswiped a state police car, that police car began to give chase, he refused to stop exceeding 100 miles per hour at times, by the time they made their way around connecticut avenue another car came, he was drivinger ratically at times lowing down to under 20 miles an hour driving this 1995 black lexus the car door passenger door was reportedly dangling, perhaps damaged in the accident finally it slowed around the area t mother and infant jumped out on the roadway and were safe caught by police taken to local hospital the suspect pulled over he was then arrested and brought here

something called the debt ceiling what could it mean for your mortgage, your 401 k getting a car with a car loan and social security. james shows us what happened. >> reporter: what would you do if your 401 k tanked? interest rates on your credit cards and mortgages skyrocketed? in the military what if you stopped getting paid. well, that could happen, if the government's cash flow trickles to a stop. >> like if you had a car and took all the oil out of the engine that would be the equivalent of what would happen. >> reporter: it could be financial armageddon most don't understand the debt ceiling how does it work? say the government is like a person it makes money but spends more than it makes and like a lot of folks it needs to use credit to pay for stuff while you and i may have to spend money on things like groceries or a car payment the
8:08 am
government still needs to cut checks for things like social security and military pay, and with the government pretty much maxed out on their line of credit this could close the door on future spending. and the problem with no spending is that the government still owes tonnes of money but can't borrow any more to pay it out. thus, three choices increase the government's line of credit raising the debt ceiling or balance the budget which would require hundreds of billions of dollars of spending cuts and tax hikes. or, the government could default on some of their loans. >> default is not an option. >> reporter: if the government defaults stock markets across the globe could tumble. and it still wouldn't fix the cash flow problem for the government. >> wouldn't be any liquidity what that means for consumers interest rates skyrocket you wouldn't be able to borrow money. >> reporter: with what money the government has left they would face tough decisions as to who to pay military, social security, school, medicare, it is all part of the worst case
